Penang Hokkien is a local variant of Min Nan (Southern Min) spoken in Penang, Malaysia. It is the lingua franca in Penang, and is characterised by the widespread use of Malay and English borrowed words. It is predominantly a spoken dialect: it is rarely if ever written in Chinese characters, and there is no standard romanisation. This article uses the Missionary Romanisation or Peh8-oe7-ji7 (白話字) which is common in Taiwan.
